Today the new patch was released, which brings us to version 229! This patch includes some adjustments for the New Year’s Eve ball that will drop at 12PM EST in all servers, some minor changes such as all items being on the item ID list again and warming up the Winter Wonderland event by 25% and, most importantly, the Procoptodon! Procoptodon From today on we will be able to ride a creature with two people at the same time! One of them can position itself in the pouch of the procoptodon and be ridden around the Island. From the pouch you will be able to shootRead More →

"Sad procoptodon is sad"

The upcoming patch (v229), that is currently scheduled for December 30th, will introduce a nice little friend for us: the Procoptodon. Since the ARK developers are currently working on the patch, and they like to tease us a little, Drake has released a preview of what the Procoptodon will look like: As you can see, there is a possibility for two people to ride the creature! This is also stated in the dossier when it was released, however we’re still glad to see that it is actually being implemented already. We can’t wait for the creature to be released tomorrow (hopefully) so we can test itRead More →


Today patch v222 was released for ARK: Survival Evolved. This patch brings us multiple new things, such as a new dinosaur (Giganotosaurus), new items, locking of all item containers and some standard bug fixes and improvements. To give an overview of everything you need, such as materials, spawn commands, etc., we have this post fully dedicated to the latest patch! There are also some screenshots included for those that cannot play the game yet but want to see how things look like. Enjoy! Container Locking From this patch on it will be possible to lock all item containers. This means that your fridge, smithy, fabricator, etc.Read More →


With the upcoming patch (v222) the Giganotosaurus will be added to the ARK: Survival Evolved game. Just a moment ago, Drake has posted a screenshot of the Giganotosaurus, which you can find below. It seems that the Giganotosaurus will be bigger than your average Rex, much like the size of the Dodorex. A little word of advice: start building your walls higher and possibly a roof, since there will be a massive tameable dino walking around ;D Rage Effect The Giganotosaurus will have a new “rage” effect that influences its state towards the players. This rage will be represented by a special “Rage” meter that fills upRead More →


Here is some information regarding the new DodoRex in ARK: Survival Evolved. It contains screenshots to show the actual size, info on its stats (so you know what you will need to kill it) and some general things like spawning it. Basic DodoRex info Currently the DodoRex seems to be untameable, like every other boss creature in ARK. It is however possible to kill it (with a team preferably) and get a special achievement on Steam. Be aware that it has a fire attack and a level 1 DodoRex already has 666,666 health! Furthermore, it is bigger than a Rex (see screenshots in this post)Read More →


Just now the ARK: Fear Evolve patch (v221) has hit and is live! Everyone can now have a week full of spooky stuff in ARK. To start, here are some pictures posted by the ARK developers of some features of the event. These include the zombie dodos, some skeleton dinos and the mighty feared Dodorex! Have fun and don’t forget to kill the Dodorex for an achievement and possibly $100,- that the ARK developers give away!Read More →


It has been on the ‘A little further out‘ list of the developers of ARK: Survival Evolved for a while: dropped item meshes. As the weeks are progressing, more and more meshes are created. Since a lot of them are already finished, we wanted to show them to you in a little preview. The item meshes can all be found in the devkit, but for those that simply like pictures, check them out below: Ammo From left to right (and bottom to top): tranq arrows (green), stone arrow, C4 ammo, rifle ammo, pistol ammo, metal arrows, shotgun shells, simple bullets, tranq dart, sniper bullets and rocket ammo. BasicRead More →


With the latest release of the ARK development kit we also found some interesting new items that are being implemented aside from the Dodorex preview. These items include: An industrial forge Bunk beds (finally something else than the thatch bed) An alchemy bench (will we get potions or does this have to do with the upcoming RP system?) A wall lamp Trophy heads, currently limited to rex and broodmother. Anyway, enough with the talking, here are some pictures: Below a comparison between the stone forge and the upcoming industrial forge. Keep in mind that the current size of the industrial forge can be off, asRead More →


With the upcoming ARK: Fear Evolved event getting closer and closer, more and more data is found in the devkit. Today we will show you some images of the upcoming DodoRex! More pictures will be added in the future, but for now you can already check how its colors are and even take a look at its fire-breath attack! We can’t wait to see the DodoRex in game, how about you? We can’t currently tell whether it will be tameable. The devkit shows torpor animations, which assumes it is, but at this point we cannot be 100% sure (but it looks promising). Besides the new dodorex,Read More →


A while ago the ARK: Fear Evolved event was announced. This event will take place towards the end of October and includes some cool features, such as: The Dodorex will make its (temporary) appearance, Bats and boas will be tameable, Nights will become longer and days will be shorter, Moon will turn red, Zombie dodos, Special edition treats and more! Currently we’ve found some items in the ARK Development Kit that have to do with the upcoming event, check them out below: When more event related items are found in the development kit, or more info is released on the event, this post will be updated.
